Perth Mint launches a new limited mintage silver bullion coin – The Australian Emu

Purveyors of the most eagerly awaited ranges of bullion coins on the market today, the Perth Mints multiple ranges of lunars and Australian wildlife themed coins are collector favourites. In recent years the mint has expanded choice away from the annual Kookaburra and Koala issues to encompass a kangaroo, crocodiles and others, culminating in the popular Wedge-tailed Eagle and Australian Swan coins. Now the Emu joins the mix.

If you’ve seen Perth Mint bullion coins before you’ll be immediately at home here. The specification, finish, and many elements of the design like the font and border are all instantly recognisable. Even the mintage of 30,000 is becoming more common as the selection of designs increases. The design of this new 2018 coin is an attractive one, in our view. An emu striding across a flora-filled landscape is simple, but perfectly done and like the Swan coin, sets an early tone for what could be a very popular series.

Available to buy now, the coin is exclusively distributed worldwide by Metal Market Europe, a Polish based investment metal company and they’ve produced a pretty cool website devoted to it at
